nerd angel

Woke up to SO much snow.
I know it is crazy that I'm about to say this but... I like the fluffy, white stuff.
Which leads to our next topic of conversation. How big of a nerd I am for making a snow angel while the kids were napping. But the snow was beckoning me...
It actually was quite relaxing... if you like to freeze your tooshie off while relaxing.
The girls are going to be jealous but we can play when they wake up. Because let's face it, this snow isn't going anywhere anytime soon.

Collin would have gasped had he seen my jimmy-rigged tripod to our front banister. You should take a self-timer shot this weekend. You don't need to risk you camera's safety like me. ;) They are freeing and fun. I have a remote but there's something about the 10 second run to get in the frame that adds to the excitement-or the dorkiness.

That is so cute! Love self timer shots. We did them for our Christmas cards. I could not stop cracking up because of our theme and the overall amount of fun we were having

I LOVE spontaneous, childlike FUN!
As a matter of fact, just this morning I was shampooing my hair and I remembered how I used to sculpt my soapy hair into fancy hair-dos when I was little! You know, when you roll it and pat it and it stays in a bouffant? I actually found myself smiling out loud...Can you smile out loud?...in the shower and delighting in being little again for just a moment. Try it! :)
Thanks for sharing your moment and giving me the opportunity to revisit mine!
Blessings!

Latrice said...

So stinkin cute Liz! How exactly did you get this pic with your self timer? Where is the camera? Hanging, on a table what?! I need to know, LOL!!

Scrapbook Coach said...

I read the post and all the comments and I am still giggling - I totally love the spontaneity of it all.

I think I will take you up on the challenge to use the self timer on my camera this weekend.

Thanks for the inspiration!

LOL So fun! I love snow too, but having tons of it since december...well, I must admit I long for spring. But, living in Norway, I guess I´ll have to wait a while ;)

Love your happy photos, your happy posts and great work :) Enjoy the snow!

Elizabeth (Beth) Moore said...

Well...if you are a nerd... you are the BEST kind! :-) darling photos...love them!

Elizabeth (Beth) Moore said...

P.S., I love how you take photos of your shoes... my middle daughter (since she was old enough to work the camera) always takes photos of her bare feet... I have several scrapbook pages of her self-portraits of her feet... it's so darling and I will always treasure each and every one of those photos... (she's 20 and STILL takes pictures of her feet to this day!) ;-)

Scrappy Girl said...

Gotta love the 10 second run!

Marfa said...

Snow is so awesome...God is amazing! I love it. We've had the best winter ever here in Ohio...and I hope for more snow, it's still winter for 2 more weeks!!!

That's what I do and feel so dorky...run with 10 seconds to spare. Self-timers!

*reyanna klein* said...

I'm 31 and the mother to two children. We have goofy fun all the time and sometimes the kids aren't even around and I have goofy fun! Like you, I love my self-timer and use it often! I feel my most relaxed when I take pics of myself! It's good to let the child out in us every now and then, it reminds us to play and have fun, age is so relative and does not mean that because you are an adult you have to act in a certain way and be this stuck up, prim and proper prune! ha ha. It's important too for our kids too to see us having fun, letting loose and just living in the moment. there is a quote something about how kids remind us how to be children all over again...it's good to know i am not the only one that does crazy things! ha ha.

How can anyone not love that fluffy white stuff? I wish we had some here in WA, its been a very snowless winter for us... :(

Winter said...

I like being a dork sometimes too! It makes life more enjoyable! :)

carrie said...
